The 2011 Leahy-Smith America Invents Act fundamentally changed the process by which life sciences companies protect their inventions. U.S. patents are no longer awarded to the first to invent, but instead to the first to file. As a result, understanding the system and the standards for protecting intellectual property is as crucial today as understanding the science behind it.
In the last two centuries, American farmers have created the most efficient, productive, and sustainable food production system the world has ever seen. And in the coming decades, they will be tasked with providing food for the globe’s swelling population, which is projected to reach 9 billion people by 2050.
In today’s rapidly changing market, you need an intellectual property team that will enhance and safeguard your competitive position. Our nationally recognized IP practice offers three key advantages: we know your business; we understand your technology; and we have the advocacy skills to help you develop, manage, and protect your intellectual assets

Every real estate transaction inherently includes environmental risks and potential liabilities. Understanding those risks prior to an acquisition, appropriately accounting for the risks in the deal terms, and managing post-closing liabilities are essential to a successful transaction. Thorough and comprehensive pre-acquisition due diligence can also identify timing concerns, financing considerations, grant opportunities, and the need to evaluate regulatory reporting concerns. In this presentation, attorney Leah H. Ziemba will provide an overview of environmental issues that commonly arise in real estate transactions and discuss how to practically manage such risks during all phases of an acquisition.
